    Stunning and so useful

    Just love this towel! Gorgeous colors, easy to use/wear/wash/travel with - definitely my fav. I wear it with my matching swimsuit, looks great!

    My kids wore these swimmers for over 2 years. Not one issue with them, they still have a good year or two in them as well so last 3-4 years. We've had no fade or stretch, no pulling or pilling. Have handed down to friends children as my children outgrew them. Love them so much.

    I am really impressed with the level of support the ladies swimsuit provides, even for a larger cup size, which is so hard to find.

    Fantastic to wear for any water activity. I love the sun protection and comfort of the swimsuit while surfing, paddleboarding or just chilling at the beach.
    — Amy M.
    Tribe Tropical swimwear is by far the best designed and quality in Australia. The thought process that has gone into these designs, made for comfort, quality and being so sunsafe is a stand out. Each time my daughter wears these they wash up like brand new.

    Hi! I’m Emily, mother of 3 little girls and founder of Tribe Tropical. 

    Growing up I used to dread beach days!
    As a red-head with fair skin, growing up in the tropics, I either had to risk being teased by other kids for covering up in a daggy old t-shirt, or end the day sunburnt & in pain. 

    Having since suffered with countless skin cancer treatments (and further to the loss of my grandfather due to melanoma), I understand the importance of sun protection - I started Tribe Tropical with a desire to protect my family and yours in beautiful, high-quality sun-protective swimwear that people would feel good in & enjoy wearing. 

    No-one should dread a beach day! I hope to help you to make them fun & burn-free also.
